ON THE PLUS SIDE
The hotel was very clean, quiet, and very convenient. The pillow-top bed was wonderful! Some guest arriving at 1 or 2 am were quite noisy as they got off the elevator, but that was not the fault of the hotel. The staff were generally friendly and helpful.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
The ONLY deficit was the breakfast buffet. It might be better to call it a continental breakfast plus. It did have the basics, but we had hoped for more options and better quality in line with other hotels. The scrambled eggs, bread options for toast, and other aspects were disappointing. Several items were not replenished in a timely manner which further narrowed our choices. Though we checked it out each morning, we ended up having breakfast away from the hotel two out of three mornings due to this situation which meant spending more money than anticipated. If this is corrected, it would be a perfect place to stay in the future.
